You want the Network to run as smoothly as possible during the holiday season, right?
Sony has announced that the PlayStation Network will be brought down for maintenance on Monday, November 17.
They'll be deploying "a series of back-end improvements" and this will take about 6 hours, from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. ET. However, if you've logged into the PSN any time between November 13 and November 17, you'll still be able to play games online and use apps like Netflix. It's just that the PlayStation Store, PlayStation Home, and your account management info will be inaccessible during the maintenance period.
Let's just hope everything goes as planned. Wouldn't want anything bad happening the day before Far Cry 4 , LittleBigPlanet 3 , Dragon Age: Inquisition and Grand Theft Auto V (PS4/Xbox One) arrive.
